KASARGOD: The National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE), a trade union of India Post, has demanded a CBI probe into the alleged scam in the recruitment of postmen and mail guards.

In a letter to A N Nanda, secretary of Department of Posts, the NFPE said a candidate from Haryana had answered questions in Malayalam using the answer keys in his mobile phone at a centre in Kasargod. The examination was conducted by the Kerala Postal Circle on May 7. Similar cases were reported in the Tamil Nadu circle where candidates from Haryana topped the examination which included a section in Tamil.
“This is a crystal clear case of corruption and malpractice and, certainly, some racket is working behind this,” wrote NFPE secretary general R N Parashar in his letter to the department secretary.
He demanded the cancellation of the examination and a probe by the CBI “so that the nexus and the racket can be busted”. Kasargod MP P Karunakaran has also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad demanding a CBI probe.
